HB 147 - Hunting Trespass PenaltiesBullock Needs to Veto
HOUSE BILL NO. 147
INTRODUCED BY A. REDFIELD
"AN ACT REVISING PENALTIES FOR FAILURE TO OBTAIN A LANDOWNER'S PERMISSION FOR HUNTING ."
This bill which significantly increases fines and penalties for hunting trespass is just another attempt to intimidate hunters. Given the imprecise marking of public land, the corner crossing ambiguity, and the de facto presumption of guilt when a hunter is accused of trespass, this bill is really a threat to public land access- and a threat to hunting .
Passed the legislature . Email Governor Bullock at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask him to veto !
